During the year Sections 109, 110, 114, 117, 118, 119 and 120 of the New 
Neponset Valley Sewer were completed, connections were made with the 
towns of Norwood and Walpole and the line to these towns was put in 
operation. The contract for the remaining Section 121 was awarded in 
March. The line has been completed as far as Washington Street, Canton, 
and is ready for the town of Canton to connect its sewers to this point, and 
the entire line will be completed early in the coming year. 

Section 125 of the Braintree-Weymouth sewer started in 1931, had been 
practically completed by the end of the year. Contracts for the construction 
of the remaining sections of this line, Sections 122, 123 and 124 were let during 
the year. Section 123 has been completed, and substantial progress has 
been made toward completion of the other sections. A contract has been 
awarded for furnishing the pumping equipment for the Braintree-Weymouth 
Pumping station and bids were received for the construction of the founda- 
tions and substructure work of the station. The entire line should be 
completed and put in operation during the coming year. 



2 P.D. 48 

The extension of the Metropolitan Sewer in Mill or Sucker Brook Valley 
from Forest street to Park street, Arlington, a distance of 2,126 feet, started 
late in 1931, was completed and put in operation June 1, 1932. 

A contract for the extension of the High Level Sewer from its present 
terminus in Oak Square, Brighton to the Brighton-Newton line, a distance 
of 1,960 feet, was let late in the year. 

The Squantum Pumping station in Quincy was completed and put in 
operation during the month of September. 

A new 15,000,000 gallon DeLaval pump has been installed in the Quincy 
Pumping station, to replace an existing 5,000,000 gallon pump. 

The new Weston Aqueduct supply main was completed during the year 
by the laying of 9,200 feet of 60-inch steel pipe from Elm street to the Charles 
River at Commonwealth avenue in Newton, where connections were made 
with the two northerly of the three 60-inch mains that were laid in 1903 
under the river just below the Weston bridge. 

The work of installing two new pumping units at the Chestnut Hill station 
has been in progress during the year. These consist of two centrifugal 
pumping units, one of 1,400 horse power and pumping capacity of 50 million 
gallons a day and the other of 620 horse power and pumping capacity of 
15 million gallons a day. At the close of the year the small unit was erected 
on the foundation at the station and the large unit had been delivered at 
the station ready for erection. In connection with the installation of these 
new pumping units a new vertical fire tube boiler 98 inches in diameter has 
been erected at Station No. 1. 

Venturi meters have been installed between the No. 4 Weston Aqueduct 
supply main and the city of Newton and town of Watertown distribution 
pipes in Centre and Galen streets at the Newton and Watertown boundary 
line and two meters have been purchased for installation on the force main 
at Chestnut Hill Pumping Station No. 1. 

The contract for the filling of the area along the Charles River from the 
Dam to Cottage Farm Bridge started in 1931, was continued throughout 
the year. Most of the filling had been completed by the end of the year, a 
considerable part of the shaping of the shores was finished and the entire 
area should be ready to start the loaming, planting and other improvements 
in the spring of the coming year. A contract was awarded late in the year 
for the improvement of the area from Longfellow Bridge to the Union Boat 
Club including the steps at the Boat Haven, and the work was in progress 
at the end of the year. The following contracts in the Parks Division, 
started in 1931, were completed during the year: 

The Ponkapoag golf course, locker and professional buildings at Redman 
Farm, Canton. 

The traffic control signals at the Larz Anderson, Western Avenue and

the approaches thereto, at East Milton Street, Boston and Milton, were 
awarded during the latter part of the year and were in progress at the end 
of the year. 

Revere Beach Parkway from Fellsway, Medford, to Main Street, Everett, 
has been widened to forty feet. 

Memorial Drive between Brookline Street and Fowler Street, Cambridge 
has been widened to forty feet and resurfaced. 

The following boulevards and parkways were resurfaced during the year 
with some changes in alignment and grade:

Hill River Road from Randolph Avenue, Quincy, to West Street, Braintree; 
Fellsway West between Cherry Street and Fulton Street and between Forest 
Street and Elm Street, Medford. 

IV. Parks and Reservations 

The usual work of maintenance and upkeep of parks, reservations and 
boulevards has been continued during the year. An appropriation of 
$100,000 was made for the relief of the unemployed and about 830 men were 
employed during the early part of the year for cutting of brush, removal of 
dead wood and other work, largely in the Middlesex Fells, Blue Hills and 
Charles River Upper Divisions. 

One hundred and seventeen band concerts were given during the summer 
months in the various parks and reservations at a cost of $19,855.51. The 
Symphony concerts were again conducted by Mr. Arthur Fiedler on the 
Esplanade for four weeks during July and August. The attendance was even 
larger than in former years. 

At the Riverside Golf Course the second nine holes built in 1931 were put 
in operation making a full course of eighteen holes. The course was well 
patronized, approximately 35,000 rounds of golf were played during the 
season. 

Nine holes of the Ponkapoag Golf Course were opened for public use July 
1, 1932 and during the remainder of the season 18,000 rounds of golf were 
played. The remaining nine holes, although completed, were not opened 
to allow the turf of the greens and tees to become more firmly established. 
The entire eighteen holes will be ready for use the coming season. 

Extensive repairs were made to the steps and shore protection at Revere 
Beach Reservation and to the seawall at Lynn Shore. Construction of a 
small sanitary was started about half way between Nahant Beach and Little 
Nahant. The seawall at Winthrop was pointed and the guard fence repaired. 

In the Middlesex Fells Division extensive plantings were made along the 
new section of Fellsway East, Lynn Fells Parkway, Mystic Valley Parkway 
and Alewife Brook Parkway. A new feed house and row of cages were built 
at the Zoo. A section of Alewife Brook near the outlet of Tannery Brook 
was dredged and the shore line reshaped. 

A new parking space for automobiles was built near the tennis courts at 
Magazine Beach. Extensive plantings of trees and shrubs were made along 



4 P.D. 48 

Memorial Drive, and considerable grading and loaming and over 5,000 feet 
of new granolithic walk installed on the lower end of Cambridge Parkway. 

The area between Brooks Street, North Beacon Street and the railroad 
in the Charles River Upper Division was filled, graded, loamed and seeded, 
and a considerable area was filled between Soldiers Field Road and Charles 
River near the Speedway. A new practice green, four shelters and a number 
of seats were built and installed at the Riverside Golf Course. 

Considerable areas in the Blue Hills were cleared of brush and dead wood. 
One hundred Arbor Vitae trees were planted at Spring Street, Dedham, a 
large number of trees were set out along Quincy Shore Reservation and 
replaced along Old Colony Parkway. 

At Nantasket Beach a new band stand was built, the Cafe stand enlarged, 
and extensive repairs made to the hotel. A concrete sidewalk was con- 
structed from the bath house to the Cafe. 

V. Police 

The permanent police force has remained substantially the same during 
the year, the force at the end of the year consisting of one Captain and 
Executive Officer, 5 captains, 6 lieutenants, 18 sergeants, 159 patrolmen, 
1 policewoman, 1 temporary patrolman, a total of 191. 

Edward M. Woods has continued as Captain and Executive Officer. 
During the year 1 lieutenant died, 3 officers retired, and 5 officers were 
appointed. Twenty call officers and one policewoman were appointed to 
serve during the summer months in addition to the regular force. 

During the year 3,894 cases were handled by the department before the 
courts. The members of the force performed 5,497 hours of extra duty 
without extra compensation. Eleven officers were commended by the 
Commission for meritorious conduct. 

The morale of the force has been excellent and it has been unnecessary 
to prefer charges against any officer during the year. 

VI. Rainfall and Consumption of Water 

The rainfall and yield of the watersheds was well above the average during 
the year, the rainfall being about 5 inches above the average for the past 
36 years. Wachusett Reservoir at the beginning of the year was at elevation 
374.77, 20.23 feet below high water, and dropped to 374.66 on January 6, 
the lowest point during the year. The reservoir filled to elevation 394.40 
on May 9, the highest stage during the year. About nine and a half billion 
gallons of water were diverted during the spring from the Ware River. 
During the latter part of the year the unusual amount of rainfall resulted in 
filling the reservoir to within a few feet of the high water mark. 

During the year 46,845,557,000 gallons of water were furnished to the 
eighteen municipalities regularly supplied, equivalent to an average daily 
consumption of 127,993,300 gallons or 90 gallons per capita for the esti- 
mated population of 1,422,170 in the district supplied, a decrease over the 
previous year of nearly seven million gallons per day and nearly six gallons 
per capita per day. 

VII. Special Investigations 

In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 12 of the Resolves of 1932 
the Commission investigated and reported on the advisability of developing 
and improving for park purposes certain property on the Old Colony Boule- 
vard in the Dorcester District of Boston. 

In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 13 of the Resolves of 1932 
the Attorney General, the Commissioner of Corporations and Taxation and 
the Metropolitan District Commissioner investigated relative to providing 
for certain annual payments by the Commonwealth to certain towns on 
account of the construction of certain additions to the metropolitan water 
system. 

In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 15 of the Resolves of 1932 
the Commission investigated and reported on the advisability of constructing 



P.D 48 5 

a boulevard or parkway from Administration Road in the city of Quincy to 
Willard Street in the town of Braintree. 

In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 16 of the Resolves of 1932 
the Commission investigated and reported relative to the construction of a 
foot bridge over the Neponset River between the city of Boston and the 
town of Milton. 

In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 33 of the Resolves of 1932 
the Metropolitan District Commission and the Department of Public Works 
prepared and reported on plans and estimates relative to the establishment 
of a comfort station and parking place on land near the Wachusett Dam in 
the town of Clinton. 

In accordance with the provisions of Chapter 51 of the Resolves of 1932 
the Commission investigated and reported on the advisability of purchasing 
for park purposes certain property on the westerly bank of the Mystic River 
in the city of Somerville.

REPORT OF DIRECTOR AND CHIEF ENGINEER 

OF WATER DIVISION 

Davis B. Keniston, Commissioner, Metropolitan District Commission. 

Sir: I respectfully submit the following report of the construction and 
maintenance operations of the Water Division for the calendar year 1932. 

Organization 

At the beginning of the year there were 58 permanent employees in the 
main and branch offices, and 305 permanent employees engaged in main- 
taining and operating the reservoirs, aqueducts, pipe lines, hydroelectric 
and pumping stations and in doing miscellaneous construction work. In- 
cluding the temporary force employed during the summer the maximum 



16 P.D. 48 

number of employees of all classes at any time during the year was 414. 
There are now 57 permanent employees in the main and branch offices and 
312 permanent employees engaged in the maintenance and operation of the 
works. 

Metropolitan Water District and Works 

The Water District now includes 20 municipalities with an area of about 
174 square miles and a population as of July 1, 1932 of 1,541,940. The 
Water Works lands include an area of about 19,000 acres, of which about 
2,000 acres have been planted with pine trees. 

The works under the control of the Water Division include 9 storage 
reservoirs with 200 square miles of tributary watershed, a total storage 
capacity of 80 billion gallons and water surface of 8,600 acres; 60 miles of 
aqueducts; 2 hydroelectric power stations o a capacity of 7,000 horse- 
power; 16 miles of high-tension power transmission line; 5 distribution 
pumping stations with a combined equipment of 6,100 horse-power and 
pumping capacity of 282 million gallons a day; 12 distribution reservoirs 
with a capacity of 2.5 billion gallons, and 165.25 miles of distribution mains. 
The consumption of water from the Metropolitan Water Works during the 
year by the 18 municipalities regularly supplied was 46,845,557,000 gallons, 
equivalent to an average daily consumption of 127,993,300 gallons or 90.0

Weston Aqueduct Supply Mains 

The permanent resurfacing of Galen and Maple streets, where pipe laying 
work under Contract No. 83 was completed so late in 1931 that this work 
could not be done under favorable condit ons, was begun in April and was 
completed May 12. The total value of the work done under Contract No. 
83 in 1931 and 1932 was $138,031.30. March 29 Contract No. 86 was 
made with Coleman Brothers, Inc., for laying 9,200 linear feet of 60-inch 
steel pipe remaining to complete the No. 4 Weston aqueduct supply main. 
This work was completed November 4, 1932. The total value of the work 
done under the contract is $138,538.19. Settlements amounting to $6,694.90 
have been made for 38,680 square feet of land acquired in fee for No. 4 main 
between North Beacon Street and Hillside Avenue in Boston. 

Northern High Service Pipe Lines 

Surveys have been made and plans are nearly completed for the proposed 
20-inch pipe line, about 21,500 feet in length, which will extend from the 
existing northern high service pipe line in Ocean Avenue near Revere Street 
in Revere to Broad and Washington streets in Lynn, to reinforce the existing 
pipe line which supplies the towns of Swampscott and Nahant. 

Additional Pumping Equipment for Chestnut Hill 

Station No. 1 

Contract No. 84 for two steam turbine driven centrifugal pumping units, 
one of 1,400 horse-power and pumping capacity of 50 million gallons a day 
and the other of 620 horse-power and pumping capacity of 15 million gallons 
a day, was made with the Warren Steam Pump Company, Inc., January 20. 
The steam turbines were made at the West Philadelphia shops of the West- 
inghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company in Pennsylvania, and the 
official shop tests of both turbines were made September 14. The centrifugal 
pumps were made at the Contractor's shops in Warren, Mass., and the official 
shop test of the small pump was made July 31, and of the large pump 
October 2. At the close of the year the small unit was erected on the founda- 
tion in the pumping station and the large unit was delivered at the station 
ready for erection as soon as the foundation and the suction and discharge 
piping are completed. In connection with the installation of the new pump- 
ing units a new vertical fire tube boiler 98 inches in diameter, constructed 



P.D. 48 17 

under Contract No. 53-M, was erected in Station No. 1 under Contract 

No. 54-M and was covered with non-heat-conducting covering under 
Contract No. 57-M. 

Meters and Connections 

In June a 12-inch by 14-inch Venturi meter connection was installed 
between the No. 4 Weston Aqueduct supply main and the city of Newton 
and the town of Watertown distribution pipes in Center and Galen streets 
at the Newton and Watertown boundary line. Two Venturi meters had 
been purchased for installation on the force main at Chestnut Hill Pumping 
Station No. 1 but had not been installed at the close of the year. The total 
expenditure for Meters and Connections during 1932 is $10,000.19. 

Purchase of Special Castings 

Contract No. 89 for furnishing 112 tons of special water pipes and castings 
was made with the Warren Pipe Company of Massachusetts, Inc., May 24. 
The total value of the work done under this contract is $10,572.70. 

Maintenance 

Precipitation and Yield of Watersheds 

For the Wachusett watershed the total precipitation of 49.93 inches is 
4.95 inches above the average for the past 36 years that records have been 
kept, and includes unusual rainfalls of 5.76 inches in 19 hours on September 
16, 5.54 inches in 75 hours October 17 to 20, and 3.46 inches in 88 hours 
November 6 to 10. For the Sudbury watershed the total precipitation of 
51.12 inches is 6.76 inches above the average for the past 58 years. At 
Cordaville in the Sudbury watershed there was a rainfall of 8.17 inches on 
September 16, and the total rainfall for the storms of September 16, October 
17 to 20 and November 6 to 10 amounted to 16.93 inches. For the Cochituate 
watershed the total precipitation of 51.63 inches is 6.78 inches above the 
average for the past 70 years. 

The average daily yield per square mile from the watersheds was for the 
Wachusett watershed 1,169,000 gallons; for the Sudbury watershed 1,071,000 
gallons and for the Cochituate watershed 1,007,000 gallons.

5 and 7 is the quantity that can be conveniently used for consumption. 

Wachusett Reservoir 

On January 1, 1932 the water in Wachusett Reservoir was 20.23 feet 
below high-water line. By January 6 the water had been drawn down 0.11 
of a foot, to elevation 374.66, the lowest stage reached during the year. 
The quantity of water then stored in the reservoir was 40,815,900,000 
gallons or about 63 per cent of its total capacity. Water in the reservoir 
reached elevation 394.40, the highest stage during the year, on May 9 when 
there was 64,161,200,000 gallons of water stored in the reservoir, or 98.76 
per cent of its total capacity. From May 9 to October 18, the water in the 
reservoir was drawn down to elevation 383.93, but with the abundant fall 
yield the water rose again and was 1.61 feet below high-water line at the 
close of the year. 

During the past year the city of Worcester did not divert all of the yield 
of the 9.35 square miles of watershed formerly tributary to the Wachusett 
Reservoir, and in April, May, November and December allowed 431,000,000 
gallons of water to flow into the Wachusett Reservoir but payment to the 
City for water not diverted has not been required, under the agreement of 
November 2, 1914, since early in 1931 when an additional source of water 
supply of more than 25 square miles was obtained for the Metropolitan 
Water District. No water was pumped from the Wachusett Reservoir or 
Quinapoxet Pond by the city during the year. 

During the year 9,597,900,000 gallons of water was diverted from the 
Ware River at Coldbrook to the Wachusett Reservoir; the town of Clinton 
pumped no water from the Wachusett Reservoir under the provisions of Acts 
of 1923 chapter 348; and 639,500,000 gallons of water was discharged from 
the reservoir into the Nashua River to comply with the provisions of 
General Laws, chapter 92, section 14. 

The Water Works lands and structures received the usual attention. 

Upon removing the granolithic walk, which was constructed on the sheet 
lead water stop over the roof of the gate chamber at the Wachusett Dam 
in 1906, to determine the cause of the leakage into the gate chamber, it 
was found that the sheet lead had disintegrated in many places due to the 
action of the alkali in the concrete. On October 28 Contract No. 58-M was 
made with the Clinton Concrete Company to waterproof the roof with 5 
plies of pitch and tar felt and lay thereon a reinforced granolithic walk. 
This work covered an area of 280 square yards and cost $1,501.74. 

Sudbury Reservoir 

At the beginning of the year the water in Sudbury Reservoir was 0.85 of 
a foot below the crest of the overflow at the dam. From January 1 to March 
31, when the flash-boards were put on the overflow, the water in the reservoir 
varied from 0.22 of a foot to 3.65 feet below the crest and averaged about 
1.75 feet below. From March 31 to November 26, while the flash-boards 
were on the overflow, the water rose to as high as 1.48 feet above the crest, 
on September 17, and went down as low as 2.71 feet below the crest on 
November 6. At the end of the year the water in the reservoir was about 
2 feet below the crest of the overflow. During the sudden yield from the 
storm of September 16, 56 million gallons of water overflowed from Sudbury 
Reservoir into Framingham Reservoir No. 3, and with this exception all 
water drawn from the Sudbury Reservoir was used for generating electric 
energy. 

The land and structures at the Sudbury Reservoir were cared for in the 
usual manner. 



Framingham Reservoir No. 3 
During the entire year flash-boards were kept on the overflow of the dam 









P.D. 48 19 

at Framingham Reservoir No. 3 and all water supplied through the Sudbury 
Aqueduct to the Metropolitan Water District and to the town of Framing- 
ham was drawn from this reservoir, which was replenished from time to time 
with water from Sudbury Reservoir. Water was wasted into Framingham 
Reservoir No. 1 from April 20 to 23, September 16 to 18, November 10 to 
15, and from December 27 to 31. The waste in April, September and 
November was due to sudden yields from the watershed and the water was 
wasted in December so that it could be replaced with water of better quality 
from the Wachusett and Sudbury reservoirs. The total quantity of water 
wasted from the reservoir was 955,400,000 gallons. 

Ashland, Hopkinton and Whitehall Reservoirs 

No water was drawn from Ashland Reservoir during the year. The reser- 
voir was kept full of water and the yield was allowed to waste over the 
spillway. 

Water was drawn from Hopkinton Reservoir into Sudbury Reservoir 
from January 8 to April 12 and from May 20 to August 17. On the latter 
date the lowest stage, 9.4 feet below high-water line, was reached. The 
total quantity of water drawn was 2,230,380,000 gallons. 

Water was drawn from Whitehall Reservoir into Hopkinton Reservoir 
from January 18 to August 9, and a small flow was maintained through the 
pipe line to prevent freezing from January 1 to 17 and from November 28 
to the end of the year. The lowest stage, 3.1 feet below high-water line, 
was reached on August 18. 

Framingham Reservoirs Nos. 1 and 2 and Farm Pond 

No water was drawn for the supply of the Water District during the year 
from Farm Pond, which has been abandoned as a source of water supply 
for the District, or from Framingham reservoirs Nos. 1 and 2 which are 
now seldom used for water supply. A daily flow of 1.5 million gallons has 
been wasted into Sudbury River below Dam No. 1 from Framingham 
Reservoir No. 1, as required by the Acts of 1872, chapter 177. 

The portion of Fountain Street crossing Framingham Reservoir No. 2, 
which is under the care of the Water Division, was repaired and resurfaced 
by the town of Framingham and the Water Division paid for the oil and for 
applying it to the roadway. 

The town of Framingham pumped 204,561,000 gallons of water from its 
filter-galleries on the shores of Farm Pond during the periods from January 
1 to June 6, June 16 to September 23 and September 26 to December 31. 

Under legislative authority the Boston & Albany Railroad took approxi- 
mately 18,800,000 gallons of water and the New York, New Haven & Hart- 
ford Railroad took approximately 16,000,000 gallons of water directly from 
Farm Pond for use in locomotives, and 11,900,000 gallons of water was 
wasted from the pond into the Sudbury River. 

Lake Cochituate 

No water was drawn from Lake Cochituate for the supply of the Metro- 
politan Water District during the year but 5,584,800,000 gallons was wasted 
at the outlet to maintain the water at the desired elevation in the lake. 
The lowest stage during the year was on January 1 when the water was 3.5 
feet below high-water line. 

In connection with the widening and rebuilding of the Worcester Turn- 
pike at the bridge crossing the lake, considerable filling was carried out into 
the water to provide for widening of the old bridge. 



t 



Aqueducts 
The Wachusett Aqueduct was used on 245 days during the year, the total 
ime in service amounting to 99 days, 4 hours and 57 minutes, and the 
quantity of water discharged from the Wachusett Reservoir into the aque- 
duct was 33,725,500,000 gallons, equivalent to an average draft of 92,146,000 



20 P.D. 48 

gallons per day for the entire year, and all of the water was used to generate 
electric energy at the Wachusett power station before it was discharged into 
the aqueduct. 

During the year the Westborough State Hospital pumped 67,286,000 
gallons of water from the aqueduct terminal chamber in Marlborough, 
equivalent to an average use of 184,000 gallons per day. 

During the year the aqueduct terminal chamber has been repaired and 
painted and in the fall, while the aqueduct was out of service for several 
weeks, the upper portion of the open channel was cleaned for a distance of 
4,670 feet and repaired where necessary. 

The Weston Aqueduct was used every day during the year, the total time 
in service being 315 days, 13 hours and 20 minutes, and the total quantity 
of water conveyed from the Sudbury Reservoir to the Weston Reservoir 
was 36,223,100,000 gallons, equivalent to an average daily flow of 98,970,000 
gallons and 17,500,000 gallons was wasted from the aqueduct on December 7. 
All of this water was used for generating electric energy at the Sudbury 
power station. 

On December 7 James Mawhinney, a laborer who had been employed on 
the Works for 15 years and a part of whose duties was to patrol about 4 
miles of the aqueduct line in Framingham and care for the fires at gaging 
chambers Nos 1 and 2, did not return home at the usual time and upon in- 
vestigation the cover of one of the manholes was found unlocked and left 
open, although his duties did not require that the cover should be opened. 
The water was therefore drawn out of the aqueduct and a searching party 
found his body about 3 A.M. on December 8 near gaging chamber No. 2, 
about 234 miles below the open manhole. 

The Sudbury Aqueduct was in continuous use during the year with the 
exception of 31 hours on October 25 and 26, and of 2334 hours on November 
3 and 4, when the interior of the aqueduct was inspected and two sections 
where organic growths were found were cleaned. The aqueduct was supplied 
with 9,244,800,000 gallons of water from Framingham Reservoir No. 3, of 
which the town of Framingham pumped 277,081,000 gallons for its supply 
and the remaining 8,967,700,000 gallons, equivalent to an average of 24,501,- 
913 gallons a day, was delivered to Chestnut Hill Reservoir for consumption 
in the Metropolitan Water District. 

The State Department of Public Works constructed reinforced concrete 
mats over this aqueduct to protect it from injury for the entire width of the 
new State highways at Reservoir Street in Needham and Boylston Street 
in Newton. 

The Cochituate Aqueduct was not in use during the year. The State De- 
partment of Public Works strengthened this aqueduct at two places with 
reinforced concrete to protect it from injury where the new State highway 
crosses. This work extended for a distance of 90 feet near Dedman's waste- 
weir and for a distance of 525 feet near Wellesley Hills Square where the 
highway follows the line of the aqueduct for quite a distance. 

The city of Newton laid a sewer under the aqueduct at Alban Road, 
Waban, 18 feet below the surface of the ground. This was accomplished 
without danger of undermining the aqueduct by driving steel cylinders 
under the aqueduct and laying the 15-inch cast-iron pipe therein for the 
sewer, filling the space between it and the casing with concrete. 

All of the aqueduct lands and structures have been cared for in the usual 
manner. 

Protection op the Water Supply 

To prevent pollution of the water supply a Sanitary Engineer and two 
aids and six watchmen have been employed throughout the year to inspect 
ice cutting and other operations and the condition of premises on the water- 
sheds and to enforce the sanitary rules and regulations. 

Water Division forces have operated the filter-beds on Beaman Street 
in West Boylston, where the sewage from the Worcester County Training 
School, which is occupied by about 32 persons, was purified throughout the 



P.D. 48 21 

year. The Gates Terrace filter-beds at Sterling Junction were operated con- 
tinuously from April 2 to October 29 to purify the sewage from summer 
cottages in that vicinity. Sewage from the Eagleville Mill and the Mount 
Pleasant House in Holden, from the Fay School and Deerfoot Farm sausage 
factory and dairy at Southborough was purified by privately owned and 
operated filter plants. 

Surface water from thickly settled drainage areas of 525 acres in the 
village of Sterling, from 1,280 acres along the brook near Maple Street in 
Marlborough, from 700 acres along Pegan Brook and an intercepting ditch 
in Natick was purified by filters operated by Water Division forces before it 
flowed into the water supply, with the exception of an overflow of 5,320,000 
gallons from the brook near Maple Street in Marlborough, which was 
sterilized with chlorine before it entered Sudbury Reservoir and of 13,397,000 
gallons from Pegan Brook and 63,759,000 gallons from the intercepting 
ditch in Natick, which was sterilized with chlorine before it entered Lake 
Cochituate. 

At the Pegan Brook filters the pumping station was operated on 263 days 
and 263,547,000 gallons of water was pumped to the filters, an average of 
720,074 gallons a day for the entire year. The cost of operating the station 
and caring for the grounds and filter-beds was $5,976.14 for labor, $478.89 
for fuel and $80.11 for supplies and repairs, a total of $6,535.14 which is 
$24.80 per million gallons filtered. The fuel cost per million foot gallons 
was $0.16. 

The cost of protecting the water supply by filtration was $1,612.00 for 
the Wachusett, $6,678.32 for the Sudbury and $6,535.14 for the Cochituate 
watershed. 

During the year 34,538 pounds of copper sulphate was dissolved in a 
number of storage and distribution reservoirs as an algaecide to destroy 
microscopical organisms, principally Uroglenopsis, Synura and Dinobryon 
which occurred in sufficient numbers to give the water an unpleasant taste 
and odor. The copper sulphate was applied as follows: Late in March 4,700 
pounds was dissolved in 1,800 million gallons of water in Spot Pond to de- 
stroy growths of Uroglenopsis, Synura and Dinobryon; early in April 600 
pounds was dissolved in 162 million gallons of water in the Lawrence Basin 
of the Chestnut Hill Reservoir to destroy a growth of Uroglenopsis; early 
in June 1,075 pounds was dissolved in the Marlborough arm of Sudbury 
Reservoir to destroy a growth of Uroglenopsis; early in July 2,950 pounds 
was dissolved in 1,088 million gallons of water in Framingham Reservoir 
No. 3 to destroy growths of Uroglenopsis, Synura and Dinobryon; early in 
August 550 pounds was dissolved in 150 million gallons of water in the 
Lawrence Basin of the Chestnut Hill Reservoir to destroy a second growth 
of Uroglenopsis in that basin; August 18 to 20, inclusive, 528 pounds was 
dissolved in the water flowing from the Sudbury Reservoir into the Weston 
Aqueduct, and on August 19, 575 pounds was dissolved in 200 million gallons 
of water in the Weston Reservoir at the outlet of the Weston Aqueduct to 
destroy growths of Uroglenopsis, Synura and Dinobryon; late in August 
18,835 pounds was dissolved in 7,800 million gallons of water in Sudbury 
Reservoir to destroy growths of Uroglenopsis, Synura and Dinobryon ; early 
in November 4,725 pounds was dissolved in 1,760 million gallons of water 
in Spot Pond to destroy a second growth of Uroglenopsis and Synura. The 
cost of the copper sulphate used as an algaecide during the year was $1,300. 

The ammonia-chlorine process was used at the Spot Pond Pumping 
Station early in the year in an endeavor to remove objectionable tastes and 
odors while the pond was covered with ice and copper sulphate could not 
be used for the purpose, but results were not satisfactory. This process has, 
however, been used with satisfactory results at the inlet to the Sudbury 
Aqueduct at Dam No. 1 to insure proper sterilization of the water 16 miles 
below at the outlet of the aqueduct at the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. The 
total amount of anhydrous ammonia used for this purpose was 4,266 pounds 
and cost $585.30. 

All water drawn for consumption during the year was sterilized with 



22 P.D. 48 

chlorine as follows: The water diverted to the Sudbury Reservoir from 
Hopkinton Reservoir at the Cordaville pumping station; water drawn from 
Framingham Reservoir No. 3 at the entrance to the Sudbury Aqueduct at 
Dam No. 1, and water drawn from Weston Reservoir at the screen chamber 
as it flowed from the reservoir. The total amount of chlorine used was as 
follows: Sudbury Section 63,960 pounds, Distribution Section 155,723 
pounds, total 219,683 pounds. The total expenditure for chlorine used in 
sterilizing the water supply during the year was $9,025.85. 

Improved brook channels, ditches, culverts and watering places were 
maintained in the usual manner. The cost of maintaining 35 miles of drain- 
age ditches on all the watersheds was $5,470.00. 

For the protection of the water supply, property was acquired in the 
Wachusett Section in West Boylston from Holdoff A. Olson, et als, 3.99 
acres; in Sterling from Willie R. Mitchell, et als, 0.33 of an acre, and in 
Holden from Heirs of Franz Baldauf, 1.66 acres of land with buildings 
thereon. The 1H story frame dwelling with outbuildings on the Baldauf 
property were razed; also the l l A story wooden frame dwelling with barns 
and outbuildings at the Sophia P. Waite place at Dawsonville, Holden, and 
at the Mary J. Holmes place in Sterling Junction. 

Clinton Sewage Disposal Works 

The works constructed under the provisions of Acts of 1898, chapter 557, 
for disposing of the sewage of the town of Clinton, were operated during the 
entire year. The quantity of sewage pumped and disposed of averaged 
1,459,000 gallons per day. The cost of operating the pumping station was 
$3,177.16, which is $5.95 per million gallons, equivalent to $0.12 per million 
foot gallons. The cost of operating the filters and intercepting sewer was 
$10,306.35, which is $19.31 per million gallons of sewage disposed of by 
sedimentation, filtration and irrigation. 

Forestry 

New plantings made during the year include 101,000 white pine trans- 
plants in the Wachusett Section; 250 white pine, 7,800 red pine, 4,300 
spruce and 85,450 arbor vitae transplants in the Sudbury Section; and 
17,000 red pine, 10,340 Scotch pine and 2,000 spruce in the Distribution 
Section. 

In the Wachusett Section brush, grass and weeds were mowed and burned 
on 47 miles of marginal fire guards and forest roads 15 to 45 feet wide at a 
cost of $30 per mile. The work of mowing brush, sprouts and weeds along 
the 40-foot fire guards in the Sudbury Section cost $1,775.68. 

The total expenditure for Forestry was $37,342.60 of which $1,772.63 
was expended for protecting the trees and shrubs from insects. 

Hydroelectric Service 

The hydroelectric power stations at the Wachusett Dam in Clinton and 
the Sudbury Dam in Southborough are operated by the water drawn for 
water supply from the reservoirs above these dams. 

During the year 11,079,776 kilowatt hours of electric energy was developed 
at the power stations in 1932, or approximately 82 per cent of the usual out- 
put. 

The value of the energy delivered in 1932 at contract prices is $68,421.91 
and deducting $53,866.77, the expenditures charged to the operation of both 
stations and the Water Division transmission line, there was a profit of 
$14,555.14. 

Wachusett Station 

The power station was operated on 245 working days during the year. 
On account of heavy rains in August, September and October the power 
station was not operated for about six weeks in the fall. The statistics are 
as follows:

Distribution Pumping Stations 

At the five distribution pumping stations 26,244 million gallons of water 
was pumped during 1932. This is 5,025 million gallons less than was pumped 
in 1931. The water pumped at the Chestnut Hill stations included 3,883 
million gallons for the low service and 16,765 million gallons for the high 
service. The high service pumpage includes 54,210,000 gallons for a portion 
of the supply of the town of Brookline and 99,644,000 gallons for a portion 
of the supply of the city of Newton, and 618,000,000 gallons which was re- 
pumped at the Hyde Park Station for the southern extra high service. At 
the Spot Pond Station 4,345 million gallons was pumped for the northern 
high service and at the Arlington Station 633 million gallons was pumped for 
the northern extra high service. By arrangement with the city of Newton 
552,948,000 gallons of water was repumped from the southern high service 
between November 27, 1931 and November 28, 1932 by the city at its Ward 
Street booster station for use on the high lands in Belmont and Watertown 
where satisfactory service cannot be furnished from the Chestnut Hill 
Station, and for this pumping the Commonwealth has paid the city $7,159.51. 

The average engine duties at the Water Division stations, based on plunger 
displacement and total coal used for all purposes, including heating and 
lighting the stations, are as follows: 

Chestnut Hill Station No. 1, 131,573,991 foot pounds per 100 pounds of 
bituminous coal averaging 14,792 British thermal units per pound. 

Chestnut Hill Station No. 2, 134,296,405 foot pounds per 100 pounds of 
mixed bituminous and anthracite coal averaging 14,463 British thermal 
units per pound. 

Spot Pond Station, 106,443,004 foot pounds per 100 pounds of bituminous 
coal averaging 14,709 British thermal units per pound. 

Arlington Station, 102,581,087 foot pounds per 100 pounds of bituminous 
coal averaging 14,738 British thermal units per pound. 

Hyde Park Station, 74,559,850 foot pounds per 100 pounds of mixed 
bituminous and anthracite coal averaging 14,175 British thermal units per 

pound. 

At the beginning of the year there was 1,217 gross tons of bituminous 
coal and 42 gross tons of anthracite screenings on hand at the pumping 
stations, and the amount on hand at the end of the year was 1,269 gross 
tons of bituminous coal and 261 gross tons of anthracite screenings. During 
the year 8,507 gross tons of bituminous coal and 1,054 gross tons of anthra- 
cite screenings were burned at the pumping stations. 

Three old boilers which had been in service for 32 years in Chestnut Hill 
Station No. 2, were removed and three new vertical fire tube boilers 98 
inches in diameter, built by the D. M. Dillon Steam Boiler Works under 
Contract No. 53-M were erected under Contract No. 54-M, and at the end 
of the year were being insulated with non-heat-conducting covering under 
Contract No. 57-M. 

The work of installing flexible stay bolts in three old boilers in Chestnut 
Hill Station No. 1 and one old boiler in Chestnut Hill Station No. 2 under 
Contract No. 59-M, was in progress at the end of the year. 






P.D. 48 25 

Four fuel oil storage tanks, built by the Massachusetts Engineering 
Company, Inc., under Contract No. 55-M were installed at the Chestnut 
Hill Pumping Stations and the work of installing fuel oil burning equipment 
at these stations, under Contract No. 56-M with the Peabody Engineering 
Corporation, was in progress at the end of the year. 

The old underground armored electric lighting and power cables between 
Chestnut Hill Pumping Stations Nos. 1 and 2, which had been grounded in 
many places were replaced with new cables laid in underground conduits, 
and as a result the electric service has been greatly improved. 

At all of the pumping stations the boilers have been regularly inspected 
and the machinery kept in dependable condition.

Powder Horn Hill Reservoir of the city of Chelsea is used when necessary 
for the northern high service. It has a capacity of 1,000,000 gallons with 
high-water line at elevation 196.6 and was in service from January 1 to 
April 16 and from December 3 to 31. 

The Mystic and Forbes Hill reservoirs have been kept full of water for 
an emergency but were not used during the year. A store house with hollow 
tile walls, plastered inside and with stucco finish outside, was constructed 
at the Forbes Hill Reservoir. 

The Lawrence basin of the Chestnut Hill Reservoir was out of service 
from January 1 to May 25 and from July 12 to October 4. 

All other distribution reservoirs were in regular service throughout the 
year. 

The Parks Division was paid $3,135.31 for police service at Spot Pond, 
Fells and Bear Hill reservoirs. 



Distribution Pipe Lines 

The new 60-inch diameter welded steel Weston Aqueduct Supply Main 
No. 4 was put into service November 15 from the Charles River at Com- 
monwealth Avenue in Newton to North Harvard Street at Western Avenue 
in Boston, a distance of 5% miles. 

November 17 Contract No. 60-M was made with L. P. Federico & Son 
for relaying the northerly of the two submerged pipe lines under the Nepon- 
set River in Hyde Park. The pipe line is 160 feet in length and 12 inches 
in diameter with flexible joints. It was laid in 1902 but was later disturbed 
by a dredge when the river was deepened and widened and the pipe line 



26 P.D. 48 

was injured so that it could not be kept water-tight. Work under this 
contract was well advanced at the close of the year. 

During the year 42 leaks were repaired in the distribution mains at a cost 
of $3,221.32. 

There are 88 Venturi meters, varying in size from 6 to 60 inches in dia- 
meter, in the distribution pipe lines; 73 of these are on connections supplying 
various towns in the Metropolitan Water District; 5 are on the Weston Aque- 
duct supply mains; 1 between the southern high service and the southern 
low service mains; 3 at the Arlington, Hyde Park and Spot Pond pumping 
stations; 1 at the city of Newton booster pumping station on Waban Hill; 
2 on connections between the Weston Aqueduct supply mains and the local 
pipes in Washington Street, Newton; 1 on connection to the Fernald School 
in Waltham, and 2 on emergency connections with Cambridge and Wake- 
field distribution pipes. There are also 9 disc and 16 detector meters in use 
for measuring small quantities of water supplied at various places. 

There are 6 pressure regulating valves in constant use for reducing pressure 
of water supplied to Revere, Swampscott and Winthrop, and the higher 
portions of Belmont, East Boston and Hyde Park. 

Recording pressure gages have been maintained at 29 places on the dis- 
tribution system and tables in the Appendix show the hydraulic grade at 
16 of these stations as determined by the charts. 

Pipes, specials and other materials and supplies required for maintaining 
and operating the pipe lines are kept on hand at the Glenwood pipe yard in 
Medford and the Chestnut Hill pipe yard in Brighton. 

Auto trucks equipped with gate-operating attachments have been main- 
tained with men on duty ready to operate them in case of emergency at any 
time during the day or night. 

Consumption of Water 

During the year 46,845,557,000 gallons of water was furnished from the 
Metropolitan Water Works to the 18 cities and towns regularly supplied. 
This is equivalent to an average daily consumption of 127,993,300 gallons, 
and for the estimated population of 1,422,170 is at the rate of 90 gallons per 
capita. 

The town of Brookline, with an estimated population of 50,240, used 
from its local source 1,652,518,000 gallons of water, of which 382,339,000 
gallons was supplied from elevation 375 and 1,270,179,000 gallons was 
supplied from elevation 250. In addition to this consumption the town was 
supplied with 54,210,000 gallons of water from elevation 250 by the Metro- 
politan Water Works, making the total average daily consumption of the 
town 4,663,200 gallons, equivalent to 93 gallons per capita. 

The city of Newton, with an estimated population of 69,530, was supplied 
from its local sources, with the exception of 99,644,000 gallons, which was 
furnished from the Metropolitan supply. Including this water, the average 
daily consumption was 5,022,300, equivalent to 72 gallons per capita. The 
amount of water furnished the city of Newton from the Metropolitan supply 
is 86,144,000 gallons in excess of the quantity which the city is entitled to 
take free of charge under the agreement made in 1900 when the Waban 
Hill Reservoir was purchased from the city, and for this water the city will 
pay $8,611.82. 

The population, consumption of water and per cent of services metered 
in the Metropolitan Water District as supplied in 1932 and for the period 
from 1890 to 1932, inclusive, are shown graphically by the accompanying 
diagram.

Obituary 

The Metropolitan Sewerage Division has been unfortunate during this 
year because of the death of two important officials in its service. Mr. 
Frank B. Williams, Superintendent of the South Metropolitan Sewerage 
District, died April 9, 1932. Mr. Williams was a man of large experience 
in the construction of public works both as a designing and as a construction 
engineer. Mr. Arthur F. F. Haskell, Superintendent of the North Metro- 
politan Sewerage District, died September 7, 1932. Mr. Haskell had been 
in the employ of the Commission for many years as engineer of construction 
and had held the office of superintendent since February 2, 1920. These 
men were valuable assistants. Their positions were filled by the promotion 
of men in the service.

CONSTRUCTION 
North Metropolitan Sewerage System 

Extension of Mill Brook Valley Sewer in Arlington 

The only construction work in the North Metropolitan Sewerage District 
is that of the continuation of building Section 82 of the North Metropolitan 
System in Arlington. The particulars of this contract were given in last 
year's report. This work was completed and the sewer put in operation on

the High-Level Sewer from its present terminus is Oak Square, Brighton, 
to the Brighton-Newton line. This extension will serve the purpose of 
relieving the present Charles River Valley Sewer by intercepting the sewage 
from a considerable portion of the higher parts of Newton now tributary to 
it and discharging the same into the High-Level Sewer by gravity.

have been laid. The Metropolitan Sewer is now completed as far as Wash- 
ington Street, Canton, and is ready for the town of Canton to connect its 
sewers up to that point. 

Squantum Pumping Station, Quincy 

The construction work on this pumping station was completed and notice 
given to the city of Quincy early in September, 1932, that the sewers of 
Squantum might be connected therewith. The station was put into operation 
during September. 

Braintree-Weymouth Branch 

At the end of the year 1931 but one contract had been let for the construc- 
tion of the Braintree-Weymouth Branch, namely, Section 125. Particulars 
of this contract were given in last year's report. Work has been continued 
on this section and it is practically completed with the exception of some 
backfilling and minor details. 

Braintree-Weymouth Branch, Section 123 

A contract was let for the construction of this section, some particulars 
of which are as follows: 

Date of Contract No. 58, (Sewerage Division) May 26, 1932. 

Name of Contractor, Bay State Dredging and Contracting Company. 

Length of Section, 1,635 feet. 

Structure, 48-inch cast-iron pipe. 

Greatest depth of trench below mean low water, 43 feet, of which the 
lower 8 feet were largely in slate rock. 

Assistant Engineer in immediate charge of the section, Benjamin Rubin. 

Work on this section has been completed. 

Braintree-Weymouth Branch, Section 124 

A contract was let for the construction of this section, some particulars 
of which are as follows: 



36 P.D. 48 

Date of Contract No. 60, (Sewerage Division) July 21, 1932. 

Name of Contractor, C. & R. Construction Company. 

Length of Section, 3,083 feet. 

Length of 4 feet 9 inches by 5 feet concrete sewer in trench, 1,701 feet. 

Length of 42-inch cast-iron pipe sewer, 32 feet. 

Length of 4 feet 9 inches by 5 feet concrete sewer in tunnel, 1,350 feet. 

Depth of sewer in trench, from 10 feet to 26 feet. 

Depth of sewer in tunnel, from 16 feet to 45 feet. 

Assistant Engineer in immediate charge of the section, Benjamin Rubin. 

Work has been carried on during the year on this section and 1,450 feet 
of sewer in trench have been completed and 400 feet of earth tunnel have 
been excavated. No sewer has yet been placed in the tunnel. In the con- 
struction of the earth tunnel serious difficulties were encountered, the bottom 
of the excavation most of the way being in very fine wet sand and the upper 
part of the excavation being in loose gravel. In order to un-water the fine 
sand in the bottom, the Contractor found it advantageous to introduce a 
well-point system connected with a suction pump. The use of this system 
has enabled the Contractor to proceed by open tunnel methods through 
difficult land which otherwise might have required compressed air tunnel 
methods. The system of drainage used is that of the More-trench Corpor- 
ation of Rockaway, New Jersey. This is the first time this method has been 
used in tunnel work on the Metropolitan Sewerage Works. 

Braintree- Weymouth Branch, Section 122. 

A contract was let for the construction of this section, some particulars 
of which are as follows: 

Date of Contract No. 62, (Sewerage Division) October 27, 1932. 

Name of Contractor, A. D. Daddario. 

Length of Section, 5,530 feet. 

Dimensions of concrete sewer, 5 feet by 5 feet 3 inches and 4 feet 9 inches 
by 5 feet. 

Depth of sewer in trench, from 9 feet to 29 feet. 

Assistant Engineer in immediate charge of the section, Benjamin Rubin. 

Work has been continued on this section and at the present time 525 feet 
of sewer have been completed. In parts of this section very lively quick- 
sands were encountered. In order to carry out the work the Contractor 
has made use of the system devised by the More-trench Corporation of 
Rockaway, New Jersey, of well-points connected to a suction pump. This 
method has been effective and work has been carried on thereby without 
extreme difficulties. 

Braintree- Weymouth Pumping Station, Quincy 

The sub-filling for a roadway from Kilby Street, Hough's Neck, Quincy, 
to the site of the proposed pumping station was placed on the southerly side 
of the Metropolitan Sewer embankment. 

Bids were received for the construction of the foundation and substructure 
work at the Braintree- Weymouth Pumping Station in Quincy on December 
29, 1932. No award has yet been made. 

Pumping Equipment for Braintree-Weymouth Pumping Station 

A contract for furnishing the pumping equipment for this station was 
entered into by the Commission, some particulars of which are as follows: 

Date of Contract No. 61, (Sewerage Division) August 18, 1932. 

Name of Contractor, Turbine Equipment Company of New England. 

The pumping machinery for this station is to consist of two units, each 
consisting of a 15,000,000 gallon DeLaval centrifugal pump operating under 
a head of 30 feet actuated by a 150 HP direct connected Diesel- Winton en- 
gine, together with all accessories appertaining. The machinery for this 
station is now being manufactured.

Maintenance 

Scope of Work and Force Employed 

The maintenance of the Metropolitan Sewerage System includes the 
operation of 9 pumping stations, the Nut Island screen-house and 139.772 
miles of Metropolitan sewers, receiving the discharge from 1,969.63 miles 
of town and city sewers at 1,395 points, together with the care and study 
of inverted siphons under streams and in the harbor. 

At present the permanent maintenance force consists of 193 men, of 
whom 117 are employed on the North System and 76 on the South System. 
These are subdivided as follows: 

North Metropolitan System, 74 engineers and other employees in the pump- 
ing stations and 43 men, including foremen, on maintenance, care of sewer 
lines, buildings and grounds; South Metropolitan System, 46 engineers and 
other employees in the pumping stations and 30 men, including foremen, on 
maintenance, care of sewer lines, buildings and grounds. 

The regular work of this department, in addition to the operation of the 
pumping stations, has consisted of routine work of cleaning and inspecting 
sewers and siphons, caring for tide gates, outfall sewers, regulators and over- 
flows, measuring flow in sewers, inspection of connections to the Metropolitan 
sewers, and the care of pumping stations and other buildings, grounds and 
wharves. 

In addition to these regular duties, other work has been done by the 
maintenance employees in this department as follows : — 

East Boston Pumping Station 

In the report of the Metropolitan Sewerage Works for 1931, mention was 
made of the beginning of retubing of the six vertical boilers in this station 
and removing of two old and the installation of two new Green economizers. 
This work was completed during 1932. 

Most of the machinist work in connection with the maintenance and re- 
pairs of the pumping units of the North Metropolitan Sewerage Pumping 
Stations is done at the general machine shop at this station. This work 
increases with the age of the units and the shop had become two small for 
handling the work. To provide larger quarters, the brick partition at the 
south end of the shop was moved about nine feet into the space originally 
used for men's dressing room and lockers This arrangement leaves suitable 
room for the men and increases the machine shop by about 270 square feet 
of floor space. At the same time a ceiling of reinforced concrete construction 
was placed midway in height over the men's room and the space thus afforded 
by using this as a floor furnished a loft for storage purposes which is directly 
connected with the machine shop by stairs. This arrangement enabled 
the introduction of an additional planer, two additional small lathes and an 
additional drill press to the machine shop equipment. 

The condenser for engine No. 4 had become so badly corroded by the hot 
salt water that it was necessary to make extended repairs. These consisted 
of a new cast-iron base and two cast-iron cylinders with brass liners. Pat- 
terns for this work were made by the maintenance mechanics and all the 
machine work and installation were done by the maintenance men. 

Deer Island Pumping Station 

At this station are four Scotch boilers installed in 1910. It was found 
necessary to retube these boilers. The work was done under contract by 
the Hodge Boiler Works. 

The four sewage screens at this station had become so badly corroded that 
repairs were no longer practical. Bids were solicited for the removal of the 
old ones and for the furnishing and installing of new ones. The work was 
completed by the Daniel Russell Boiler Works, the lowest bidder. 

Quincy Pumping Station 

The condenser pump used for pumping unit No. 2 at this station was 
installed in 1898. Extensive repairs were made on it by the maintenance 



38 P.D. 48 

employees. These consisted of new steam and water cylinders, liners, pistons 
and valve rods. This pump as now repaired is suitable for condenser use 
in connection with the new 15,000,000 gallon pumping unit at this station. 

As originally constructed this station had two duplex reciprocating Deane 
pumps, one of 3,000,000 and one of 5,000,000 gallons of sewage per 24 hours 
capacity. To these were added a 10,000,000 gallons per 24 hours Lawrence 
centrifugal pump driven by a compound Sturtevant engine in 1907. Later 
(1923) the 3,000,000 gallon Deane pumping unit was replaced by a Morris 
pump and a Morris compound engine of 10,000,000 gallons per 24 hours 
capacity. 

The 5,000,000 gallon Deane pumping unit was removed this year and in 
its place has been installed a 15,000,000 gallon DeLaval pump actuated by 
a Fitchburg vertical uniflow engine. The placing of this unit is nearly 
completed and it will be ready for use early in the coming year. This unit 
was furnished f.o.b. cars Quincy by the Turbine Equipment Company of 
New England and was erected by the maintenance employees. Testing of 
the unit was done at the plants of the manufacturers and was witnessed by 
a testing engineer representing the Commission. It passed the tests and a 
bonus as provided in the contract was paid because of excellence of per- 
formance. 

Squantum Pumping Station 

This station was completed and put into operation on September 12, 1932. 
The two pumping units consist each of a vertical DeLaval pump actuated 
by a 60 HP Crocker-Wheeler motor capable of lifting 4,000,000 gallons of 
sewage per 24 hours against a total head of 46 feet. A reservoir capable of 
holding 300,000 gallons of sewage was built and this station is arranged to 
act automatically. No constant attendants are employed. The operation 
of the station is supervised by the engineer of the Nut Island Station. 

Sewage from the station is discharged through a cast-iron force main into 
the Boston Main Drainage works at Squantum Head as authorized by the 
Legislature in Chapter 240 of the Acts of 1928. 

Hough's Neck Pumping Station 

The electric energy required to operate the Hough's Neck Pumping 
Station is produced by generators in the Nut Island Screen House and is 
transmitted over a distance of one-half mile through underground conduits. 
The lead covered cables which carry this current were installed originally 
in 1910. The lead casing had become so badly corroded that it was necessary 
to replace them by new ones. These were purchased by the Commission 
and the work of laying was done by an arrangement with the Quincy Electric 
Light and Power Company who had special appliances for this work. The 
connections and finishing work were done by maintenance employees. 

Gasolene in Public Sewers 

During the year the usual precautions have been maintained against the 
introduction of gasolene into the Metropolitan sewers. An inspector who 
covers both North and South Metropolitan Sewerage Districts has been 
employed. His duties are to see that all newly constructed garages or other 
gasolene-using establishments are supplied with a proper gasolene separator 
and also to see that these separators are kept in working condition. 

During the year 1932 the number of permits issued by the municipalities 
in the Sewerage Districts for the construction of garages and other places 
where gasolene is used was 205. Each of these permits necessitates an ex- 
amination by our inspector. Many of them are attended to through the 
mails and do not require a personal visit. Visits are made, however, to all 
locations where a connection is to be made with the public sewerage system 
and to such places as do not respond to the return postal cards sent out. 
During the year 20 such places were connected with the sewers that empty 
into the Metropolitan Systems. At the present time, there are, according 
to our records, 1,631 garages and other establishments where gasolene is 



P.D. 48 39 

used connected with the local sewerage systems which discharge into the 
Metropolitan sewers. 

This system of inspection has improved the gasolene situation in regard 
to the danger to the sewers. Occasionally odors of gasolene are detected 
in the sewers. These are reported to the Public Safety Department which 
alone has statutory control of the distribution and handling of gasolene in 
the Commonwealth.

Metropolitan Sewerage Outfalls 

The Metropolitan Sewerage Districts now have outfalls in Boston Harbor 
at five points, two of which may discharge sewage from the North District 
and three from the South District. 

During the year the sewage of the North District has been discharged 
wholly through the outlet located near Deer Island light. The other outfall 
of this system is closed by a cast-iron cover which can easily be removed. 

Of the outfalls of the South District two extend for a distance exceeding 
one mile from the shore of Nut Island, Quincy, and the third one, called an 
emergency outlet, extends about 1,500 feet from the same. It was necessary 
to discharge sewage through this outfall 131 hours during the year. 

During the year the average flow through the North Metropolitan District 
outfall at Deer Island has been 82,400,000 gallons of sewage per 24 hours, 
with a maximum rate of 151,700,000 gallons during a stormy period in 
November 1932. The amount of sewage discharged into the North Metro- 
politan District averaged 115 gallons per day for each person, taking the 
estimated population of the District contributing sewage. If the sewers in 
this District were restricted to the admission of sewage proper only, this 
per capita amount would be considerably decreased. 

In the South Metropolitan District an average of 68,400,000 gallons of 
sewage per 24 hours has passed through the screens at the Nut Island 
Screen-house and has been discharged from the outfalls into the outer 
harbor. The maximum rate of discharge per day which occurred during a 
stormy period in November 1932 was 205,000,000 gallons. The discharge 
of sewage through these outfalls represents the amount of sewage contri- 
buted by the South Metropolitan District, which was at the rate of 115 
gallons per day per person of the estimated number contributing sewage 
in the District. 

Material Intercepted at the Screens 

The material removed from the sewage at the screens of the North 
Metropolitan Sewerage Stations, consisting of rags, paper and other floating 
materials, has during the year amounted to 1,872 cubic yards. This is 
equivalent to 1.68 cubic feet for each million gallons of sewage pumped at 
Deer Island. 

The material removed from the sewage at the screens of the South Metro- 
politan Sewerage Stations amounted to 4,760 cubic yards, equal to 5.14 
cubic feet per million gallons of sewage delivered at the outfall works at 
Nut Island. 

Studies of sewage flows in the Metropolitan sewers and siphons indicate 
that they are free from deposit.

Director and Chief Engineer of Sewerage Division.
